Butternut Kofta [vegan]

Kofta plays a huge part in indian vegetarian culture. there are many styles and i’ve gone for something a little different. Traditionally the kofta’s would be deep fried but to make it healthier our kofta’s are roasted in the oven. Married with an elegant garlic & tomato sauce, a cabbage & cashew thoran along with a methi roti this dish is sure to get your tastebuds tingling.

Lamb Chettinad

Indian cuisine would not be complete without showcasing a succulent lamb dish, and there are so many to choose from. I have chosen a delicious recipe originating from the Chettinad region of South India. One of the distinctive spices in chettinad cooking is stone flower, unusual and fragrant! You will see this spice in action here. Make this with a potato spinach subzi, coriander seed carrots, a wonderful chettinad sauce and a delicate raita.
The flavours will keep coming at you for sure. Tasty succulent and delicious

Seabass Pollichatu

Pollichatu has a great following in the south and here is my version. You would traditionally use more spicing to marinade the fish but I prefer to keep the marinade simple.A wonderful elegant fish dish, quick to prepare and a light dish for discerning tastebuds. A light affair with a twist of Kalonji which goes well with fish, so as not to overpower the Seabass.

Tadka Dall [Vegan option]

This is the most exciting dish for me! There is nothing better than a well-cooked dall served with paratha. Proper tadka dall is a necessity for your skills in Indian cooking. in Indian cooking you may hear the term thali, this means dish or many dishes. this box is like a mini thali. in the past, I’ve seen many offerings of this traditional dish but I want you to experience how it is prepared authentically.

Pork Belly Vindaloo

This amazing dish heralds from the Portuguese, contrary to popular belief “Vindaloo” is not a “blow your head off” type of dish. Vindaloo actually originates from vin d’alho meaning meat [mostly pork] in wine and garlic which has since been substituted for vinegar by the Indian Goan cooks.

Nariyali Jhinga

South india showcases some amazing seafood dishes. Here is a classic example. Juicy king prawns in a coconut, coriander, fennel seed & curry leaf sauce. Served with plantain thoran, coconut rice & kalonji roti. Fragrant, tasty and delicious.
